A note on periods of powers. (English. French summary) Zbl 1360.37097
Summary: Let \(f:X \to X\) be a continuous map defined from a topological space \(X\) into itself. We discuss the problem of analyzing and computing explicitly the set \(\mathrm{Per} (f^p)\) of periods of the \(p\)-th iterate \(f^p\) from the knowledge of the set \(\mathrm{Per} (f)\) of periods of \(f\). In the case of interval or circle maps, that is, \(X=[0,1]\) or \(X=\mathbb S^{1}\), this question was solved in [the author, Int. J. Pure Appl. Math. 72, No. 4, 527–536 (2011; Zbl 1247.37033)]. Now, we present some remarks and advances concerning the set \(\mathrm{Per} (f^p)\) for a continuous interval map, and on the other hand we study and solve the problem when we consider \(\sigma\)-permutation maps, namely, when \(X=[0,1]^k\) for some integer \(k \geq 2\) and the map has the form \(F(x_{1},x_{2}, \dots,x_{k})=(f_{\sigma (1)}(x_{\sigma (1)}),f_{\sigma (2)}(x_{\sigma (2)}), \dots,f_{\sigma (k)}(x_{\sigma (k)}))\), being each \(f_j\) a continuous interval map and \(\sigma\) a cyclic permutation of \(\{1,2,\dots,k\}\). This paper can be seen as the continuation of [loc. cit.].
